First Coast Logistics CEO H.R. (Buddy) Bowser and his wife Debra Bowser

A Mission That Says it All

Led by H. R. “Buddy” Bowser, CEO & President, First Coast Logistics is a second generation family-run enterprise with a ‘can do’ team culture.  Many of our owner operators, staff, and management have been with the company for decades.

Our Mission is:

To provide domestic intermodal service, shipment tracking, and communication that is so consistently dependable, we become the primary carrier for our customers.


A work environment so personally rewarding that we are viewed by employees, owner/operators, and agents as the best company team to belong to.

Since founding in 1991, First Coast Logistics has grown to span the majority of the US East Coast, serving all major ports, railroads, and the transportation and logistics needs of major companies whose brands fill your cupboards and homes.

If you’re eating, drinking or otherwise enjoying it, chances are a truck played a part in getting it to you!
